Welcome! I am Rev. Yvonne Pettiford with Hope in the Word Ministries. My purpose is to share the Word of God with my readers and to teach and equip others on applying the Word of God to their lives and to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In a world full of hopelessness, anxiety, and fears I want to let my readers know that there is hope through Christ Jesus. He and only He can give you salvation, peace, joy, healing, and hope. How do you get to know Him? Through God's Word! Your faith and trust in Him can grow by reading and applying His Word to your life. Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Blessings everyone and welcome to THE FAITH WALK!

DID YOU KNOW...

There are some names or people in the Bible that we don't know much about or hear much about - one such person is Naaman. There is a story of a successful Syrian commander named Naaman who had the disease of leprosy. Upon the suggestion of the servant girl of Naaman's wife, Naaman went to see the prophet Elisha to be cured of his leprosy. He was told to wash in the Jordan seven times and he would be healed. But Naaman became angry at first. He eventually did as Elisha said and dipped in the Jordan seven times. His flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. This is an amazing story of healing and turning to the Lord. Where can you find this story? 2 Kings 5:1-14 CHECK IT OUT!

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



Let's look at three reasons to study the Bible:


1. TO LEARN WHO GOD IS, TO KNOW HIM BETTER, AND RECOGNIZE HIS VOICE Who is God?... GOD IS LOVE


I John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Deuteronomy 6:4 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.


How can you love Him if you don't know Him? To get to know God, you have to spend time with Him! How do you spend time with Him? READING HIS WORD - THE HOLY BIBLE!

God wants to have a close, intimate relationship with you! Spend time with Him every day!


Pray to Him so that you will hear Him and recognize His voice.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

I John 1:5...God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth.


2. TO GAIN WISDOM, LEARN WHAT IS RIGHT, CORRECT WRONG THINKING, AND RECEIVE GUIDANCE


Psalm 32:8-9 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.


When you get up during the night or in the morning, what do you do? Turn on the light!

Let God's word be a lamp to your feet and show you the right direction to walk and take you down the right path.


3. TO KNOW AND FOLLOW JESUS

How do we get to know and follow Jesus? By reading our Bibles! The whole Bible is His story.


John 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.

John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
